Thoroughly titillating and a total guilty pleasure. Just as good as I hoped it could be. I couldn't put it down! The sex was searing, and I loved how different but equally valid the two pivotal sexual relationships were.
Some of the worldbuilding (especially in dialogue) got clunky at points, but the world itself was well-realized and interesting. I'm hoping the level of detail and thought means that this book is a series foundation.
I loved how even though this novel was clearly set in a rising dystopia, the central story was one of protection and nurturing, set apart from the horrible world outside.
